Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Unit two of the Spanish as a Second Language curriculum for first graders offers learning and assessment activities designed to provide the English-dominant child with structures and vocabulary he will need for effective communication in a bilingual environment. Activities in kits five-eight, centered around the family, help the child build concepts in his new language through formal and informal language experiences and allow him to actively participate so that he may associate language with his experiences. Kit themes and activities are as follows: (1) who the child is--identifying oneself, others, family members, personal characteristics, and family roles, and applying the concept of numbers to people and classroom objects; (2) the child's needs and wants--family needs and wants, articles of clothing, secondary colors, equivalent sets; (3) the child's resources--identifying, matching, and grouping resources in the home, identifying rooms and their functions, expressing happiness, describing and ordering events; (4) the child's use of his resources--money as a family resource, household chores, happiness and sadness, textures, foods, association of personal experiences with those of story characters. Each kit contains a vocabulary, the focuses of and criteria used to develop the assessment activities, and assessment sheets. (RS)
